In Japan, Level 5 have announced their next installment in the Professor Layton series. The game, titled Professor Layton and the Mask of Miracles, sees Layton off to a casino/amusement park city to investigate the mystery behind a mask that grants wishes. The game is currently scheduled for a 2010 Japanese release.

Professor Layton and the Devil’s Flute kicks off a new Layton trilogy when it comes out this week. This arc takes place before Professor Layton and the Curious Village and explores how Layton met his protégé.

Next year, Level 5 has Professor Layton and the Mask of Miracles on their schedule. This game takes place in a casino city called Montedoll where Layton investigates a wish granting mask. Level 5 didn’t share any gameplay details so you’ll have to imagine Layton solving brainteasers, given to him by clowns, in a carnival.

Professor Layton and the Mask of Miracles is slated for fall 2010. Since we’re still waiting for the finale to the first trilogy I wouldn’t count on a domestic release of Mask of Miracles anytime soon.

      What does Nintendo have to do with how fast the games come out? It's the work of Level 5, pretty sure Nintendo just publishes.

        You answered that yourself.

        Nintendo publish the titles and so it's obviously their speed which dictates how soon we get the games.
